DAVID GILMOUR.

back to DAVID GILMOUR.

 

SESSIONWORK:

Besides that he's a session-player, and on most of his works with other artists you can hear the astonishing guitar solos;

Syd "Crazy Diamond" Barrett (The Madcap laughs and Barrett; both from '70 & the single, 7-inch; Octopus/ No good trying),

Roger Waters Together with Ricky Wright and Nicky Mason they did session-work for the track Give Birth to a Smile, on Roger Waters and Ron Geesins album Music for The Body ('70). The three other Pinks are not mentioned as session-players, but they get paid for the job. It is the nicest song on the album and that's not because David, Nick and Rick are involved in it but because the great voice who's singing, is the clue. I don't know who she is.

11th of May 2007
The tribute show for Roger "Syd" Barrett, Madcap's Last Laugh was held at the Barbican Hall in the heart of the city of London (11th of May), it featured an array of Syd's fans and colleagues, performing a healthy chunk of his back catalogue. Amongst these, were Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, between them performing three songs in honour of their old bandmate. Profits from the concert were donated to the mental health charity SANE, nominated by the Barrett family (who were represented at the gig.

syd One of the first big surprises of the evening, was the introduction of Roger Waters. Coming on stage with Jon Carin he explained why he chose his own song, "Flickering Flame": "I was thinking about this, and [this song] seemed apposite, so we'll try and struggle through it."
And so on stage, billed not as Pink Floyd, but Rick Wright, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, came the second shock of the night. With them all looking pleased to be able to offer their tribute to Syd, David commented that Syd "really was everything they say he was, our Syd." On hearing calls for "Roger Waters!" David replied: "Yes, he was here too... now the rest of us!"
They played "Arnold Layne" and with everyone joing on stage except Roger "Bike" was performed.

Nick Laird-Clowes and Joe Boyd organized this event (with others).

With Ron Geesin and Caroline Dale, performing "Atom Heart Mother (Cadogan Hall, London - June 14th 2008 ).

Phil Manzenera 10 Feb 2009.

8th of May:
A unique performance in aid of the homeless charity, Crisis, took place at the Union Chapel, Highbury and Islington, last night, 25 May 2009, seeing David appearing with Malian singing duo Amadou and Mariam.

The special show was on Monday 25th May at a secret venue in Central London; ticket holders will be informed of the venue details on the day prior to the show.
Amadou & Mariam, whose albums include Dimanche à Bamako (Sunday in Bamako) and their latest, Welcome to Mali, are huge David Gilmour fans and were able to meet him at the Mojo Awards a couple of years ago, so it was natural for Crisis to suggest a musical collaboration between themselves and David around their May 24th Jazz Café show. Crisis will receive all proceeds from the 'hidden' May 25th gig, which will include support acts, after which Amadou & Mariam will play with their electric band for around an hour, including a portion with David Gilmour on guitar.


YouTube "No Way";

18 June 2009.
Kate Moss, at London's Cafe de Paris as part of a charity fundraising evening. The event - "Hoping's Got Talent" - was in aid of the Hoping Foundation, and raised over 500,000 during the course of the night. Hoping stands for 'Hope and Optimism for Palestinians In the Next Generation' and they aim to raise money for community projects involving children in Palestinian refugee camps.
Kate was supposed to be judging the karaoke contest that involved a number of Britain's top celebrities, but clearly couldn't resist the opportunity when it came along. A guest bid 47,600 to hear her and David perform together, which was an unscheduled finale to the show.
George Gershwin's standard "Summertime" was the choice of the two celebs.

4th of July 2009:
Jeff Beck in the Royal Albert Hall with David Gilmour.

JUNE 2010:
David Gilmour performs with Rev. Al Green.
David Gilmour performed with the legandary Reverend Al Green last weekend on BBC1's Friday Night with... Jonathan Ross. Also in the band, which was put together for one night only, was Jools Holland, his brother Christopher, Gilson Lavis on drums, Lisa Grahame and Phil Veacock taking on saxophone duties, Chris Storr on trumpet, and Barry Campbell, on bass. Although the rendition of Let's Stay Together was an excellent one, perhaps Mr Gilmour should have used a guitar that was plugged in!! It was barely audible! But I guess it lends itself well to the style of the song. You can enjoy the song below.

11TH JULY 2010: Roger Waters and David Gilmour perform charity show together last night It seems London was the place to be last night: in a bolt out of the blue, David Gilmour and Roger Waters performed together for the Hoping Foundation Benefit Evening, playing Wish You Were Here!
